How to Cowork Like A Pro: A Guide To Coworking In LA, NOLA, SF, Chicago, LA, Atlanta and Miami

I love laptops and the freedom it gives you to work from anywhere. Sure you might work from home a coffee shop or your hotel while traveling but after a while you'll want to place to go that offers fast and reliable wifi, flowing coffee and a room of people staring aggressively at their screens.  Below is a round-up of the best passport co-working services and co-working spaces outside of NYC.

For example, in Chicago Deskpass gives you access to 40 spaces, in LA they have 30 and recently opened in Denver. In the next few months they are expanding their reach to a few more exciting cities so stay tuned. When you're a Deskpass member you can go to any coworking space meaning whatever city you're in you'll have access to awesome workspaces on demand.
